Abortion reversal is a new procedure developed by a Catholic, pro-life doctor, who wanted to give women the option to prevent their abortions from happening after the procedure is already underway.
Dr. George Delgado developed it as an option for the small group of women, who immediately regret their decisions after making them, and yes, as you might expect, it’s causing controversy within the medical community.
The procedure targets a specific form of abortion — the kind administered by a regimen of pills.
Vocativ’s Elizabeth Kulze explains that “a medical abortion can be achieved by taking a series of pills to terminate a pregnancy. (This is different than Plan B, or what’s commonly referred to as the ‘morning-after pill.’) Mifepristone, or RU-486, which is known as the ‘abortion pill,’ first blocks progesterone, causing the uterine lining to break down so the pregnancy cannot continue. Typically, a second pill, Misoprostol, is taken 24 to 48 hours later, which causes the uterus to empty.”
Those who undergo the abortion reversal procedure would interrupt this process by receiving progesterone treatments after the first pill. The treatments must be received within 72 hours of RU-486 consumption.
